. it is still unclear what the libyan government is doing to bring those killers to justice. president obama yesterday telling the u.n. assembly that america will get to the bottom of the murders of chris stevens and the others. >> the attack on civilians in benghazi were attacks on america. there should be no doubt we will be relentless tracking down the killers and bringing them tobill: how possit while order in libya is still unknown? we want to begin our coverage now. greg palkot streaming live out of tripoli. what is the latest on this militia crackdown there, greg? >> reporter: bill, martha, we're getting mixed signals about that. we were just talking to our contact in benghazi. he said one of the key militias in that city is it falling into line with the government. we've been out and about here in tripoli. we visited one compound where militias were driven out by libyan security forces but there are new protests planned for here and in benghazi on friday. a sign maybe the folks here aren't too sure what is going on with the militias. amid new concerns some of their weapons are going
a recording from president obama's past is also getting some attention. the then state lawmaker in this video talks about spreading the wealth. >> i think the trib is figuring out how do we structure government systems that pool resources and hence facilitate some redistribution because i actually believe in redistribution, at least at a certain level, to make sure that everybody's got a shot. martha: raises a lot of philosophical questions about the differences in this campaign. chief political correspondent carl cameron riding the bus with the romney campaign. and he is live from dallas on the way to the airport this morning. good morning, carl, how is all this playing out? >> reporter: well, for republicans, martha they see this something of a rhetorical gold mine opportunity. when you listen to what the president said back when he was a state senator in illinois in 1998 he said structure government, pool resources and redistribute wealth. that to republicans is proof what they have been alleging since the obama administration started, that in effect, the president is trying to completely
show weill hear from president obama. he will step to the stage in front of the podium at the united nations general assembly. that will happen at 10:00 eastern. big moment for the president because critics have been saying he should have been more focused on the dramatic events that have been unfolding including the murder of four americans at our consulate in libya. governor romney hitting the president on the campaign trail for referring to the turmoil going on there as bumps in the road. >> there are extraordinary events going on in the middle east. considering those events either one of them or all of them collectively as bumps in the road shows a person who has very different perspective about world affairs than the perspective i have. i think this is time for america to exert leadership. this is not something we're doing in the middle east. frankly the course we're on domestically left so many people behind. i think we have to take a very different course than the course that has been followed last four years. bill: we're going to take this course. team fox cover
to be careful because they're concerned about action there. in fact, in the statement, that president obama issued regarding the deaths of the u.s. diplomats he says that the united states will provide all necessary resources for security, personnel and libya and around the world. this is a global concern, very at least, a regional concern as we look harder at incidents there. bill: all this happened yesterday on the date of the calendar was september 11th. is there a connection there, greg or what can we report on that? >> reporter: there has been no declared connection. certainly it is an eerie coincidence at the very least and underscoring of security concerns for americans and the risks inherent in serving in these countries, especially in that region, bill. bill: greg, there will be a lot to report throughout the day. thank you. we'll be back in touch with you live in london. martha has more. martha: breaking news on this as we mentioned chris stevens is not the first u.s. ambassador to be killed in the line of duty. looking back five others have been killed by terrorists before ambass
: president morsi is in cairo. he talked to president obama last night. he has not exactly towed the u.s. line on this. he so far said people have right to protest after a phone call with president obama late last night where president obama took a very tough line with egyptian president. he went on tv today, gave a seven-minute speech. he said it is unislamic to commit this kind of violence against foreigners and foreign embassies. he has gone short of saying the protests they want to stop. they want something called a no insult to our prophet march. the muslim brotherhood calling for the protests is the same party that president morsi. you can see the tear gas coming. all the protesters running as police have started firing back into their line, bill. bill: such a game of cat-and-mouse on the streets below. thanks for your reportering on the streets of cairo. bill: we'll stay on it. we'll bring all the pictures as we come in. we have more details on the arrests linked to the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in libya. libyan authorities are reportedly interrogating four men right now. the
in the muslim world. president obama is set to address the general assembly. that will happen tomorrow. what does he need to say in that address to that group about all of this? republican senator john barrasso says world leaders and the american people need to hear three messages he believes from the u.s. president. he will tell us what he believes that must be. that is coming up a few minutes away. pressure increases on the white house to answer more questions about what happened the night that four americans were killed in libya. the government there claims that it is launching its own major crack down now against the country's militias. will that make a difference in all this? greg call coat joins us now streaming live from tripoli with the very latest. good morning, greg. >> reporter: hey, martha. we're a day away for the deadline for the rogue militias to disband. we spoke with a libyan official in trip poe -- tripoli he is claiming it is going better than expected. one of the group militants left a base here. there was a little bit of skirmishing but went off okay. they're being repla
but against violence against diplomats that is a good thing. we also know president obama spoke with him and spoke to the leader of libya overnight, probably to get them in line. libya -- involving the u.s. ambassador and other americans, bill. bill: greg, thank you for following that out of london. here is martha with more. martha: we're monitoring two navy warships as they position themselves off the libyan coast today. there are new questions whether the attacks in libya were spontaneous or whether they were a coordinated terrorist attack perhaps designed to coincide with september 11th. national security correspondent jennifer griffin is live at the pentagon. good morning to you. i know you've been talking to a lot of people about this. what have you learned? >> reporter: essentially, martha, what i learned there is no clear picture at this point in time exactly what happened at the consulate in the benghazi. intelligence analysts are scouring information, information they had both before the attack and as it was taking place. it was not clear whether this was a serious protest outsi
the obama administration has failed on the economy, saying that more government intervention will only make things worse. >> sooner or later when the boar rowing runs out or when we can't borrow like we have those empty promises become broken promises. that is what europe is involved in right now. they're in a debt crisis. they're slashing benefits for retirees right now, cranking up tax rates. young people have no opportunities. that's the future will will have if we don't get this situation under control. bill: that from iowa. joe biden heads to the same state today. paul ryan will head to new hampshire and virginia later. iowa has six electoral votes and they're getting all kinds of attention and lets you know how every single vote counts in the election. martha: crowd in iowa. many states will enjoy that kind of attention as we go through the process. bombshell senate report highlighting serious abuses we want to tell you. errors in how the social security administration doles out disability benefits that report, found more than a quarter of those benefits should never have been awarded
to take the call to duty to get into action to protect us and keep us safe and thankfully, president obama recognizes the responsibilities of that oath as well and he has done a lot to protect us. bill: andy, for the families here, they approach this day every year with a sense of dread and for good reason. even if people who live in new york city and in washington, who are not directly impacted by the events 11 years ago, they too have a sense of dread when the day always approaches but it seems a little bit of that has chipped off every year as we move further and further away. even if you look at some of the video that was filed that day, it is starting to take on age when you see the taxis, the police cars, the firefighter uniforms and, as we move further away from that moment, i guess we'll digest it in our own personal way as we always do and i was just curious about you, how do you approach this day? >> well, you know i was there when the president was asked by arlen howard, this was on friday, september 14th, 2001, when the president visited the world trade center aftermath and met
